In camp, Cody consults his map and packs up the bike.
All ready to go!
After he left, I went on a walk along the Thunder Creek trail. Yes, that is really the color of the creek, from glacial melt.
Met up with Cody around lunchtime - now it's all uphill to the pass.
At Washington Pass. It was too long and steep, and I had gone back to pick him up. Now he'll have several days of downhills and fairly level roads, so he'll be able to build up his strength. He has a heavy load on that bike!
Our camp for the night is at Lone Fir campground, which is on Early Winters Creek. Rather chilly, I might add!
Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine, to sense in small things the beginning of infinite significance, to sense the ultimate in the common and simple, to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.
Happy Trails, Buzz
